We had a bit of trouble parking as it is fairly limited but managed to find a space. Initially wanted to visit Rc Otters but queue too long. Spotted Key Lime Bistro and glad we chose it. Lovely friendly staff and a good lunch menu. Very good value for money. We had hot dogs and burgers...lots of food and delicious.... More

The food is excellent. Pick anythign from the menu and it will be good. Save room for dessert. The live music is a nice touch. The service has room for improvement.

Four in our group shared the crab cake appetizer. We asked the server to recommend an entree and she said the stuffed grouper is their signature dish. We ordered two to share with the sauce on the side. It was served with a side of yellow rice and some sliced carrots and broccoli. The fish and stuffing were very dry... More

As Captiva Island is a sleepy town, restaurants close pretty early. It was also the day after a major rainfall so a lot of the places were flooded and were closed. My sis read reviews about this restaurant and how it was highly recommended. We sat outside, which was nice. The annoying part was that smokers could stand beside the... More

After reading so many good reviews we came here from Sanibel. We were unfortunately disappointed. The music and ambience was fantastic, but the stuffed grouper was a huge disappointment. The waitress said it was their signature dish. All 4 of us ordered it and all agreed it was dried out. For the price it was not worth it at all.... More

Good very casual outdoor restaurant. I had an excellent crostini and risotto for dinner. The interesting menus for dinner and breakfast made it difficult to choose. Would definitely return!

Fun, adult drinks. Great place to bring kids. Live, afternoon music. Indoor and outdoor seating. Very close to the beach. Service was good. Key lime pie = mmmmmm. This is a popular dessert on the island. We would go back.

The two who had fried or blackened grouper sandwiches really liked them. Big salad was okay and the bruschetta appetizer was weird....no chopped tomatoes, just tomato sauce, tons of shredded melted cheese on crostinis. I wouldn't eat there again.
